According to the BBC, East Kent Hospitals NHS Trust has been charged with exposing Harry Richford and his mother Sarah to significant risk of avoidable harm.

Harry died at one of the Trust hospitals, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, in 2017, seven days after he was born.

Earlier this year, the Care Quality Commission found that maternity services in the Trust still required improvement despite the recommendations of earlier inspections.

An independent review of maternity services and the deaths of other babies at the Trust, the Kirkup Inquiry, is on-going.
